Posts Tagged ‘Shotgun Scabbard’

A shotgun scabbard (shoulder mounted) is used for carrying and securing a shotgun with a barrel length of usually between 18 and 20 inches although some will accomodate both shorter and longer barrels.  I recommend that your shotgun scabbard have the following.

  • Removable shoulder strap that uses quick release buckles
  • Webbing on both sides to attach molle gear such as saw pouches to hold additional shells.  (I keep two saw pouches attached to mine).
  • Padding around the entire scabbard for shotgun protection.
  • Grommets for drainage.
  • Expandable lower portion to accomodate various barrel lengths.
  • Adjustable zippered opening for pistol grip configurations.
  • IMPORTANT – My shotgun scabbards will fit all of my tactical shotguns which have Surefire G2 lights attached; however the shotguns with sharp breacher barrels will tear the inside of the scabbards lining and will be difficult to insert and remove unless you put a small sock or some other fabric covering over the breacher barrel first; then put the shotgun into the scabbard.  When you remove the shotgun from the scabbard make sure you remove the sock or other fabric covering before using the shotgun.
